A Lion and Tiger Fighting.
A Lion and Tiger Fighting.
Painted & Engraved by James Ward, Painter & Engraver in Mezzotinto to His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.
London, Published June 1st. 1799 by James Ward & Co. No. 6 Newman Street.
Mezzotint. 605 x 475mm. Uncleanly trimmed 5mm into the plate at top.
A Study of 'Lion and Tiger' was exhibited in the Academy in 1798, and it was after this that James Ward became anxious for public approval for his painting. A prolific artist, James Ward. R.A (1769-1859) was one of the finest animal, portrait, and landscape painters of Regency England. Brittle, pious, and argumentative, Ward worked well into the mid-19th century, creating dynamic compositions that epitomized Romanticism. He was devoted to the art of Rubens and Van Dyck, and emulated them more than any of his contemporaries.
